A scary good time

Princeton Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club president Frank Wolsfeld (from left), Chamber director Kim Frey and Chamber volunteer Judy Carlson work on the Chamber scarecrow in front of Princeton’s Prouty Community Building, in preparation for Friday’s Moonlight Madness event.

The Chamber scarecrow is one of more than 25 scarecrows decorated by Princeton businesses for Moonlight Madness, which will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday along Princeton’s Main Street and business districts. The Friday event will also include shopping opportunities, hayrack rides, beer tasting and brats, and a bean bag tournament. Public judging on the scarecrows can be done through the Chamber’s Facebook page, with the winners announced at noon Friday.
